C'mon Nick. DidI have to add 'and expand the Championship by four teams'?
If that causes badly-supported clubs problems, so be it ;)

I've always suspected this (re a combined Prem and Champ Cup), what is your source?

Personally I think this would be good at boosting the profile of the Championship as it gets national coverage and has a tv deal.

But as PRL have refused this it is not going to happen - the protectionism of that cartel is unbelievable. It would have been an opportunity for their A league players to have a run out, and to spy on potential Championship recruits. I would love to see this competition come to fruition but alas I suspect nevergoing to happen.  
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

yes - very interested in the source. My understanding was that the RFU bigwigs were in Leeds dealing with that.
